    Tandy Craftool Pro Stamps Discontinued

    In the light of Tandy's new pricing strategy, i am pretty much sure ,if they gonna come up with a replacement for their Craftool Pro Stamps, everybody will be impressed...hopefully in a good way.

    Distance from the edge

    To me is the distance between the stitching prongs i am using for that particular project, most of the time...so instead of using the dividers for my stitching line i am using my 2 prong pricking irons

    Best Pricking Irons

    I have the Beagle irons in 3mm, 3.35mm and the 3.85mm .I don't think i can ask more from a set of stitching irons...great price , beautiful elegant design, very well made and probably the smallest hole made by any stitching iron out there. Pictured below are the 3mm using #92 thread (.337mm)

    Makers stamps, who’s the best?

    I have few made by LW Leather too , all under $30 and i am very happy with them. I guess his CNC is as good as everybody's else out there

    Decision time for me.

    The Sailrite will stitch closer to edge without worrying about the leather dropping in the feed dogs slot every time the feed dogs are going down.

    Tandy Pricing Structure Change

    This new pricing structure has been in effect in Canada since the beginning of April. Some of the items ,including hand tools are priced even lower than Ebay or Amazon.Affordability combined with the great store experience, makes Tandy the one stop shop , that beginners or advanced leather workers will appreciate even more.

    1.5 amps motor on a walking foot

    I might end up bolting the servo motor under my work bench and mount the machine only when i need to use it. I can probably cover the cut-out for the belt with the cutting mat when the machine is not being used . Thanks for your input guys

    1.5 amps motor on a walking foot

    I guess replacing the flywheel with a larger one will help, without the help of an idler wheel? Will that also slow it down a bit too? Thank you .
  10. Would a 1.5amp motor be able to "move" a Nakajima 341 successfully ? I have a servo motor for that machine but having one of those small motors attached to it might save a lot of space as i don't have room for another full size table in my basement. I am planning on using this machine only for up to 6-8oz ..mostly wallets or light bags. Any other suggestion? Any input would be a appreciated Thank you ! Ed

    Weaver stitching chisels ?

    Aren't this the same chisels sold on eBay for $10 for a set of 1,2,4 and 6 prongs?. I have the 3mm and the 4mm. . The 3mm makes very small holes , the other ones , not so small . They are not bad for up to 8oz. Can't go wrong for the price ... they will make diamond shapes holes , 3 ,4,5 or 6mm apart , so if that's what you want you will be happy. . If you are looking for a particular angle pitch , super steel, nice presentation packaging and so forth , then you might have to spend a "little bit" more . A 10 prong will cost you around $11

    New stitching irons

    Here is a review ( not mine) on YouTube. At one point they are compared side by side to Amy Roke irons . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzm8A61ZFxM

    New stitching irons

    I am waiting on him to release a watch strap punch too. Apparently he is gonna come up with other tools in the near future. Philip Jury will post a YouTube review of those irons ...waiting on that too. Meanwhile i ended up buying a Beagle set in 3mm...front and back side pictured bellow. I used #92 sewing machine thread

    New stitching irons

    That's one thing i like ( beside the beautiful design) about the 4Z irons : square tops , regular Allen key (or flat screwdriver) for easy change, including the ability of turning the teeth for an inverse stitch. It looks like they use a 440c stainless that's also used in knife blades, surgical instruments , chisels , ball bearings and so on. But then again , you can't them with 20 teeth like KS
